This opportunity is reaching out to elderly Jews with the Gospel in cooperation with a local Messianic ministry.

You'll be sharing the love of Christ with elderly Jews in Ukraine. The crisis and war have increased the price for food and groceries, so most retired people cannot afford quality living on their small pension. Many of them are too old and have reduced mobility, they need others to take care of them. This is an opportunity for you to practically show the love of Christ to the elderly Jewish people of Ukraine. It’s an amazing way to be a real blessing for the Jews who desperately need to be taken care of. Serving Jewish people is a great privilege as they are God’s chosen people, and you’re blessed for being a blessing to them.
